Question for Ed2 if i may, which i can't see has been asked, why do you do this? Is it just to educate us mere mortals? You share your considerable knowledge, yet time and time again you have to deal with numpties giving you grief just for telling the truth.

Anyhow i, and no doubt the majority of the decent posters, really appreciate everything you and the other Eds do!

Take it easy :)

{Ed002's Note - It is a social service to try and bring a little light to the lives of the shaven-headed, lager-swilling, pot-bellied, tattooed knuckledragging oafs that support the club.}

1.) 14 Aug 2017 21:48:15
And it's much appreciated ed002, let me know when your in town so I can take you to a pit pony race and take you for a nice fried curry 👍😂.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 21:51:41
I have hair, rarely drink, am closer to under than over weight and have no tattoos Ed. Does that put me in the glifnard category instead then? 😢😂

In all seriousness though, I think I speak for a vast majority here when I say that we really do appreciate the time you put into this site. I cannot thank you and the other Editors enough for the work you all do. Thank you!

{Ed002's Note - Actually you sound OK. I would not want may daughters near you, but I would let you cut my lawn.}

3.) 14 Aug 2017 21:55:01
TK if we didn’t have the eds and their great service, LFC fans would always be on the FSG/ Klopp out bandwagon thanks to twitter and bs media.

Still quite a few of twitter believers on here who are the ones to give the eds grief but it doesn't deter them luckily from helping the genuine fans and we appreciate all the hard work you lot do 😄.

4.) 14 Aug 2017 22:44:40
He would let you cut his lawn but wouldn't hang his underpants on the line for fear of you pocketing them and selling them to your special friends.

{Ed002's Note - How much would you pay for them Davey?}

5.) 14 Aug 2017 22:44:52
Ditto. Top stuff,

6.) 14 Aug 2017 22:54:55
I second that. Thanks for all the excellent work eds 👍🙏.

7.) 14 Aug 2017 22:55:00
The same price you paid for them at Primark😉.

{Ed002's Note - I only first found out what Primark was this weekend Davey. Seriously.}

8.) 14 Aug 2017 23:13:35
Don't go in there with any of your wives ed you won't make it out alive.

9.) 14 Aug 2017 23:15:58
An initiation ceremony then.

10.) 14 Aug 2017 23:17:34
{Ed002's Note - I only first found out what Primark was this weekend Davey. Seriously. }

Well I am surprised, a knowledgeable person such as yourself, an American as well . Primark is an American national treasure been going for over 100 years now.

{Ed002's Note - No idea about that Roy. I only found out this weekend due to slightly odd circumstances. Not involving me but a daughter of friends of d=friends who had to do some sort of challenge.}

11.) 15 Aug 2017 00:08:59
Was the challenge trying to find an item of clothing that was on the right hanger ed002?

12.) 15 Aug 2017 00:11:32
Ed I'm slightly offended. I'll have you know I don't have a single tattoo. And my head isn't shaven. it's just all falling out.

In all seriousness, appreciate what you all do. Including that serial drinker ed025 (he's not an alcoholic, he doesn't go to meetings :) ) . Even if your taste in music is not the best, and that video game you recommended me I'd never heard of seemed silly. What was that game again. it's an old game with an alliterative name.

{Ed002's Note - I am not a video game player - perhaps one of the others mentioned one.}

13.) 15 Aug 2017 09:57:34
No it's not roy. It's an Irish company.

14.) 15 Aug 2017 13:01:27
Leisure suit Larry in the Land of Lounge Lizards. How could I ever forget. Pretty sure you recommended that ed002.

{Ed002's Note - Yes, that would be me.}

15.) 15 Aug 2017 16:56:45
Primark never heard of it, I have heard of the designer fashion house of primarni 😉.

hey ed01 trust you're well mate, quick question if you could sign one of leon bailey or pulisic for LFC who would you choose and why?

{Ed001's Note - Pulisic as he has his head on his shoulders right.}

1.) 23 Dec 2018 06:28:47
Pulisic off to Chelsea by the looks of it. Bailey has been inconsistent (he is young though), and we need a wide player to compete with Mane and Salah. Someone like the aforementioned would give us a real boost in terms of depth and quality. Really don't want to see any more of Origi or Lallana being pushed out wide as they are hopeless playing there.

2.) 23 Dec 2018 07:04:17
You guys think we'd ever make another attempt for Brandt?

3.) 23 Dec 2018 08:44:48
Could it be Bailey knows he is off too another club and his head somewhere else, I like the look of Bailey looks strong skilful direct an can finish.

4.) 23 Dec 2018 19:24:51
Love a Baileys at Christmas.



19 Sep 2018 10:14:16
Hi ed01, hope you're well and enjoyed last night! I look forward to reading your match review, all the best. YNWA.

{Ed001's Note - cheers mate, just trying to get a chance to sit down and rewatch it.}

1.) 19 Sep 2018 10:18:08
Bit of an odd “celebration” by Salah when Bobby scored, he almost looked gutted.

He’s not sulking about this mobile phone thing is he? 🤨.

{Ed001's Note - he did celebrate initially, did you want him to run up and down the touchline screaming with joy and jumping into the crowd to hug anyone within reach? He is disappointed with his performances, his shoulder is still not 100% and he needs time to get back to his best.}

2.) 19 Sep 2018 10:38:56
He is way off the pace as I said after the Tottenham game, his performances are poor, he gives the ball away numerous times, his touch is poor and he cost us their second goal last night.
He is still world class but if it was my choice, I would drop him for a couple of games, throw The Shaq' in, and just let him work on his fitness, touch and getting that confidence back.
It is a testament to Klopp, the squad and sheer hard work that we are now 6/ 6 this season without actually playing that well. We are going to click very soon though and give someone a tasty spanking!

{Ed001's Note - seriously? He was not poor and has not been poor. He has not been at the level he was at the end of last season but he has been far from poor and the last thing he needs is to be dropped.}

3.) 19 Sep 2018 10:53:19
Ed 001 appreciate your view *rest deleted*

{Ed001's Note - no you have clearly shown by your previous snide comment that you don't appreciate anything but your own view, so I won't waste anyone else's time or my own with yours.}

4.) 19 Sep 2018 12:44:27
i don't think Salah is off form in anyway. if anything, his presence is pinning back the fullback and the covering midfielder. it is not as if fullbacks he is up against are bombing forward with ease because they have no concerns that he will exploit that space effectively. Or that he is consistently mis-passing or not reading the plays. It is quite delightful to see 3 to 4 players surround him when he gets the ball and yet he is able to find a good pass to keep the ball / keep the attack flowing, or even work some space for himself to thread a final pass or shoot.

Oh, and i won't write him off about scoring identical amount of goals as last season just yet. He really only started his streak in Nov/ Dec i think.

5.) 19 Sep 2018 12:35:26
I disagree with our view on Salah shughes. He is the main focus of the opposition, every time he touches the ball 2 or 3 players surround him. He'll be fine. Also, remember how many clear opportunities he missed early on in the year last season. He'll be fine.

Also Ed001, how cool would it be if Milner keeps up his form for the entire season and ends up as the league player of the year. I don't think it will happen, but that would be fantastic.

{Ed001's Note - it would be brilliant and well deserved if he did.}

6.) 19 Sep 2018 13:22:46
Just having Salah on the pitch worries opposition defenders, they are terrified when he runs at them. Even though it hasn't clicked yet this season he has been far from poor. Remember when Mane went through a lean spell after his injury last season. He'll be firing on all cylinders again very soon.

7.) 19 Sep 2018 13:30:29
I would prefer Salah to tick along as he is for now and peak towards the middle to the end of the season ie "business end". No player can go through an entire season playing outstanding football every game.
Just wondering what your opinion is on Robertson's performance last night? I thought he was decent going forward but when he found himself in the left full position he looked nervous. Gave possession away from a few clearances and with the way he was swinging his leg if there was a stray cat in front of him it would have been booted out of the stadium lol.
Great win by the lads though so well done YNWA.

8.) 19 Sep 2018 13:32:09
I don't think that Salah should be dropped on the basis of his performances, he's not been outstanding this year but he's still playing better than most of the league. But it does seem to me that our club never get anything good out of playing people who are not 100% (most recent example being Lovren about this time last year) . I very much hope that we aren't gambling Salah's long term fitness on his shoulder and that he we have the confidence to let him recuperate as much as needed because we have more than enough tools to beat anyone without him.

9.) 19 Sep 2018 13:32:19
Well, Milner is clearly the best player of the year thus far, for us. And if he turns out to be the best player of the league at the end of the season, then I'm sure very few would question or doubt it. He's more than deserving.

10.) 19 Sep 2018 14:11:12
I think we've too quickly elevated salah to messi status. Now he is having a very natural blip in outcome, he is being over criticized. In reality he has been getting much the same opportunities he was at this stage last year but hasn't been as clinical. And yet he has still put up 2 goals and an assist in 6 starts.

He needs to play through this period.

11.) 19 Sep 2018 15:29:56
Yeah sgynwa dropping Salah would be the worst and dumbest thing to do, thank dog you're not our manager, that would only make matters worse. I was actually thinking the opposite, that Salah should start vs Southampton and put Shaq in for Sadio. The best think for Mo is to play through his funk until he bangs in a couple of goals and Ingsless Saints at Anfield is the perfect chance to do just that.

12.) 19 Sep 2018 22:14:37
Thanks ed, so you don’t think it’s anything to do with this mobile phone thing then?

{Ed001's Note - no mate, I don't.}

13.) 19 Sep 2018 23:26:00
Salah needs to be dropped for shaqiri. Shoot me down but Mane is head and shoulders above Salah! He is so direct and his quick feet! Excellent! Should be in the top 3 signings under klopp!

14.) 20 Sep 2018 15:22:53
i believe Jurgen Meister totally misread my post!

15.) 20 Sep 2018 18:04:07
I thought he has still looked a danger in all are games upto now things just are not going for him and as ed said still not 100% think he might be feeling a bit of pressure to follow up from last season with nearly every pundit going on about him doing it for a second season. but I don't think any of are forwards are in full flow yet so god help everybody when they are.



03 Sep 2018 17:18:49
Great news with Hendo signing a new long term contract, one of the most underrated players imo!

1.) 03 Sep 2018 17:57:21
Fantastic news mate!

2.) 03 Sep 2018 18:14:45
Has Mane signed a new one yet?

3.) 03 Sep 2018 18:19:08
Hopefully he’ll lift the premier league trophy this year.

4.) 03 Sep 2018 18:43:30
Really happy about Hendo. So underrated.

5.) 03 Sep 2018 19:38:13
you mean just like Mignolet sign a new contract then Klopp went to buy Karius to replace him?

6.) 03 Sep 2018 20:08:04
Underrated by who? If anything he is overrated on this site. He is a good player but a million miles of Kante, Modric etc.

7.) 03 Sep 2018 21:03:05
I think the site knows he is nowhere near those players mate but we don't have them we have him and thus support him till the cows come home.

8.) 03 Sep 2018 21:25:22
Underrated by people like you mark! You don't what you've got until its gone.

9.) 03 Sep 2018 21:43:30
Mark, you saying Hendo is overrated is an opinion, you are entitled to. That said, who gives a hoot about Kante and Modric right now? Do they play for LFC? NO. Is anyone comparing Hendo to them? NO. We are happy that a very good player and dedicated capt., has been rewarded for his services to our great club. Could you not just be happy for him instead of making pointless comparisons with players that don't even play for us? The topic is about Hendo getting a well-deserved new deal, end lof story. I know you tried to slide a slick dig onto the lad BUT pls, stay on topic.

10.) 03 Sep 2018 21:47:33
Result with hendo in team are always better than without him. every team needs a Henderson. Btw his passing range is what underated.

11.) 03 Sep 2018 22:04:31
In a galaxy far far away, Damien Comolli will be sticking two fingers up at FSG.
Because in space no one can hear you scream.

12.) 04 Sep 2018 06:31:04
Well said BRover, could not agree more.
Haters going to hate.
chuffed to bits for Hendo and the team. As red Phil said, his passing range is top draw and his professionalism is 2nd to nun.

Have a great day Ed’s and reds.

13.) 04 Sep 2018 18:24:55
Spot on with Commolli, Juicer. He being right on signing Hendo (while ignoring his other failures like Adam, Carroll, Downing etc), is like saying that cos a broken clock is right twice a day, it can be relied upon to give the right time of the day, all the time. The guy is still as incompetent as they come and Hendo's rise (that has NOTHING to do with Commolli, btw) is down to the player and him alone.

14.) 04 Sep 2018 18:39:35
This is typical of the responses from the same few posters. Haters? Who said anything to give that impression. Everytime we say a player is crap, good, great etc it is because we have compared him to other players. How else would you be able to form an opinion as to how good he is? FOR YOU BROVER SOME CAPS.

Many people on here think Henderson is great I don't, so what? Hendo is better than Gini, same as Milner and will be a long way off Keita when he gets up to speed. I am glad he signed a new deal as he is a good steady player.

15.) 04 Sep 2018 19:24:45
@ Mark
Is our entire team over rated because none are as good as Pele, Messi, Maradona, either of the Ronaldos, Kruyff, Ronaldinho, Zidane.

Guess Liverpool F. C. is just over rated cause none of them have ever played for us. your 1st post was your opinion and my opinion is that it was rubbishty post.

It was a positive post about our captain signing a long term extension and you felt the need to level unnecessary comparisons.

I don’t quite get why you would be glad we signed a player who you feel is over rated.?

16.) 05 Sep 2018 13:34:08
I just think we play better with him in the team - that really says it all for me. He adds so much to the overall dynamic.

I don't really care if he's a better tackler than Kante, passes better than Modric, faster than Keita - he's probably none of those things, but that's all pretty much irrelevant to me.

Also, I felt he played brilliantly over the World Cup and showed just how much of a leader he is. I have to admit, when he was given the captaincy, I wasn't 100% sure he was right for it. I guess we didn't exactly have a ton of options in that respect, but it shows just how wrong I was.

He's an absolute asset to this club, so it's great to see him sign a new contract.



16 Apr 2018 23:12:25
i've been reminiscing about John Barnes, oh my days what a player. How much would he worth today? vid i found, enjoy :)

1.) 16 Apr 2018 23:58:22
Couldn't put a figure on it . But surely a world record fee . Certainly one of the most gifted players we've had in the red jersey.

2.) 17 Apr 2018 00:28:53
Fantastic. Had the pleasure of seeing him live from the Kop once or twice. Amazing compilation. It's clear that what ever any player in modern football has done, Digger did it already! (That scissor kick! )

3.) 17 Apr 2018 00:50:56
Totally agree, amazing player (and not too shabby a rapper ;-) )

He was the English equivalent of Maradonna with the strength AND the skill, IMO.

4.) 17 Apr 2018 08:24:16
In Top Five Liverpool players ever. Wonderfully skilled, brave and with such a footballing brain. He lit up Anfield so often with his fantastic play. In another world he might have gone on to manage the team in a succession after The King but it wasn’t to be.

5.) 17 Apr 2018 09:09:23
I started supporting Liverpool early 80s and i used love digger. He could dribble and shoot with that left foot much like our Egyptian king of today💪.

6.) 17 Apr 2018 09:29:45
This Man is the sole purpose I started supporting Liverpool all those years ago
My all time fave player followed by Rob Jones
What a player Barnes was one of the best never to be fully appreciated by the England fans sadly.

7.) 17 Apr 2018 09:33:15
When you mention John Barnes, surely you got to mention Peter Beardsley too! Btw when I see John Barnes video, i thought Ojo had a similar style.

8.) 17 Apr 2018 09:35:34
Amazing player. Was my hero as a kid. I think he has been a bit under estimated of late. I agree, one of the best players to have played here, or anywhere. Showed the Brazilians how it's done!

9.) 17 Apr 2018 10:28:36
Yeah, he was awesome. My all time favourite LFC player, i just don't think he was fully appreciated (apart from by LFC fans) . In today's world he'd be talked about, in my opinion, in the same breath as Messi and Ronaldo.

10.) 17 Apr 2018 10:46:04
One of the legends of Liverpool's history fabulous player and a gent.

11.) 17 Apr 2018 12:38:12
I was directly behind that Scissor Kick.

We were away to Blackburn, and at the time I lived pretty much across the road from Ewood Park.

12.) 17 Apr 2018 13:24:48
Favourite player of all time! one of the main reasons i loved Football and Liverpool.



15 Mar 2018 22:40:16
Alright Ed01 hope all's well mate, some cracking stuff being rolled out at the mo! You still doing your legends profiles? Is Fernando Redondo on the list? Would love to hear your thought's on him. Keep up the great work.

{Ed001's Note - yes mate and yes. Still working on Cruyff, just so much to read on him it is taking some time to put together so I had a break to put some other articles out in the meantime.}

1.) 16 Mar 2018 07:23:37
Redondo was one of the most elegant players and technically gifted midfielders I have ever watched. He looked like he was walking while others were running and breaking sweat on the pitch, making football effortless and easy. What a player!

2.) 16 Mar 2018 08:36:41
He'll always be remembered particularly for that remarkable assist for Raul at Old Trafford.

3.) 16 Mar 2018 08:50:56
Are you going to do one for Stoichkov ed?

{Ed001's Note - of course mate, he is a proper legend. Loved seeing him play.}

4.) 16 Mar 2018 10:54:17
I'll always remember Redondo for a number of reasons, one that he was so elegant he made the game look easy, two that season when he was injured in Serie A he handed his salary back as he said that he did not deserve it and three, that time he put Gary Neville on his arse after nutmegging him. A real joy to watch in midfield and one of my favourite ever non Liverpool players.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 19:16:08
Can't wait to see it edd, as he is a big legend here in my contry.

{Ed001's Note - I think he is a huge legend pretty much everywhere football is big.}

Cheers ed01 and Fruit Salah and no Brezteke certainly not drunk. Sanchez has not impressed me in the slightest and is one of the factors for spurs inconsistent form as poch is trying to shoe horn him into the team.

{Ed001's Note - I agree with you Tk, not a fan of him at all. He is not in the same class as the two Belgians.}

I don’t think you will LSD as anyone who thinks Sanchez has been class has not been watching the same player as I have. I remember the Europa final where he was completely hyped and was the worst player on the pitch. Good thing about football is we all have opinions. You keep Sanchez and I’m happy with VVD (ps I’ll chuck in Migs) 😀.

Ed01, is Steve Nicol on the legends list and if not would you mind doing a player review as i'd love hear your thoughts on him and his strengths etc. Anyhow, hope you're well!

Great read that Ed, but how can you leave out Gerard Pique or Iker Casillas! Two of the most hyped players ever.

{Ed001's Note - because both are no longer highly rated. Most people in Spain think they should both be retired.}
